Weaving Doup Leno Lecture/Demo with Daryl Lancaster

September 18 @ 1:00 pm 3:00 pm

Let the loom do all the work! Beautiful lace effects can be achieved by creating half heddles or doups and with the press of a treadle, or lift of a lever, threads magically cross themselves in the warp.

This technique is possible on four shafts and with eight shafts the possibilities are even better! Learn how to create doups, thread for doup leno, and how to treadle some wonderful lace fabrics. Based on the lengthy article featured in Heddlecraft Magazine.

Skill Level:  All level weavers welcome.

Supplies:  A PDF handout will be available for participants with the basics of the techniques, edited down from the full article written for Heddlecraft which was over 31 pages. For anyone who wants the full article with all the drafts, Daryl recommends purchasing Heddlecraft Magazine, Volume 4, Issue 1, January/February 2019 $4.50.

Cost:  $10 CVFG Members, $15 Non-members.
